Australian Wine Exports - Gapsted Estate

Gapsted Estate, located in Victoria's High Country, is a family-owned award-winning Australian winery with a strong focus on emerging and alternative varieties. Established in 1997, the collaboration of winemakers and viticulturalists used their combined expertise to select the ideal site in North East Victoria. The construction of the winery began with storage and fermentation tanks constructed onsite along with a small crushing facility. The commitment and dedication to producing exceptional wines over the past 26 years has earned a loyal following of wine lovers who appreciate the authenticity and integrity behind each bottle.

The quality and authenticity of our wines has led the portfolio expansion from approachable, joyful wines through to the development of benchmark, prestige wines. Gapsted Estate is renowned for producing exceptional wines from alternative grape varieties that thrive in the Alpine Valleys that demonstrate our ongoing commitment to excellence and the driving force behind our winery and team. By crafting wines of purity, precision and power while nurturing the individuality of the Alpine Valleys and the personality of each variety, we take our customers on an exciting journey of discovery.

Gapsted Estate is a modern, state of the art facility that is capable of crushing up to 5,000 tonnes while having the ability to handle small, premium parcels from vine to bottle. Our current export markets include Norway, Sweden, Finland, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Japan. Our well-known and award-winning brands include:
